A teenager from Rye Brook has been stabbed to death at Binghamton University. In a statement, BU spokesman Ryan Yarosh said that the stabbing does not appear to be a random act.
The suspect, who fled on foot, was described as a light-skinned male wearing dark trousers and a dark hoodie, according to police.
The university identified the victim on Monday morning as a freshman engineering student Joao Souza, and said his family had been notified.
Souza's suitemates at Windham Hall have been relocated to other rooms.
Authorities are asking anyone with information about the stabbing or the suspect's whereabouts to contact Binghamton University Police at 607-777-2393.

"As someone who was a student until a few months ago, and someone who is still a part of the BU community, it's tough to hear about something like this happening on campus", Taylor said.
The first alert said the stabbing occurred in Windham Hall and that the suspect ran away from the area.
Investigators from university and the state police interviewed people overnight.
This was the slaying of a student in the past two weeks.
